Robert Fitterman & Kim Rosenfield, poets-in-residence at Shandy Hall

Shandy Hall, Coxwold, August, 2010

information as material and the Laurence Sterne Trust proudly welcome poets Robert Fitterman and Kim Rosenfield as poets-in-residence at Shandy Hall during mid-August 2010. The Manhatten-based pair will stay on site at the Hall, which is the former residence of the famed 18th century English writer Laurence Sterne and now functions as a museum dedicated to exploring the legacy of his work in the arts generally and in the context of the artefacts of his estate.

During their residency the acclaimed conceptualists will generate work specifically for the up-coming ‘A Perverse Library’ exhibition at the museum, which has been curated by Simon Morris and opens on the first week end of September.

Fitterman and Rosenfield will also do two one-off readings: the first at ArtSpace Gallery, 8 Tower Street,  York on Monday 16th August, 7pm; the second at the Contemporary Poetics Research Centre, Birkbeck College, School of English and Humanities, Malet Street, WC1E 7HX, London on Monday 23rd August. Both events are free so please do come and enjoy this rare treat.
